Cute Mini Birthday Cakes (tealight candles)

 Animation from
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends!  We had a very relaxing day - quite laid-back, which was great.  It is a little strange that we don't have any snow.  I'm not complaining - actually I'm rather enjoying not having to drive around in the slushy mess that it usually becomes.  It wouldn't as smooth as this ride, I'm sure...

So I've been wanting to share these for awhile.  Have you seen any of the little "cakes" made with the mini tea light candles?  I bought some of them a few weeks ago and when the ladies got together for our last Chalk-a-holics meeting, we made these.  Aren't they cute?

Paper:  Mocha Morning Specialty DSP, Soft Suede, Blush Blossom, Regal Rose, and Certainly Celery card stocks.
Punches:  1-3/4" Scallop Circle, Scallop Trim Border, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack 
Other Accessories:  Basic Rhinestones, Bitty Buttons, Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol and sprayed on Soft Suede cardstock.
If you have any questions on how I made these, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at

I also have an adorable video that I just had to share with you.  It's the Twelve Days of Christmas performed by animals (sort of).  Too cute!  If you don't see a video player, you can view the video HERE

Until next time...
